Spicy Yellow Rice

Don't forget to enter our giveaway here...

Do you ever eat something that is so good that it is all you can think about? This was one of those recipes for me! My MIL, Kammi gave me this recipe and the flavors were AWESOME!! Now Kammi doesn't really eat very much meat, so this dish is vegetarian. However, if you are a meat lover, feel free to grill up some chicken breasts and mix them in, or add some sausage, or kielbasa sausage. 

Makes 5-6 Servings
1 package of Vigo Yellow Rice
1 can diced tomatoes with green chillies (if you aren't a chili fan, then just use diced tomatoes)
1 red pepper-diced
1 green pepper-diced
1/2 onion-chopped
1 can black beans-rinsed and drained

Make rice as directed on the package. While the rice is cooking up, saute the onions and peppers until soft. If you are adding meat-cook that up as well. Once the rice is done, mix the tomatoes and beans in with the rice. We didn't mix in the peppers and onions because we all like different amounts...so just top your serving with your veggies. Enjoy!

This rice looks really good....but I have never heard of Vigro Yellow Rice. Is it found in the rice section of the store, or is that a brand name? Thanks for any information!

Good question! Vigro is the brand name. When I went to the store, it was over by the rices, but I was told it could also be found by the mexican food. I am sure any yellow rice would do, but my store only had Vigro!

Thank you! I am definitely going to make this!

Good job on "Good Things Utah" today! I'll be trying the "Chicken Pesto Pizza", too!
